A female Muslim Arab terrorist stabbed and lightly wounded a soldier at the entrance to the Jewish community of Mevo Dotan in Samaria Thursday morning.
The terrorist was neutralized at the scene by security forces and was treated after being described as being in critical condition. She was subsequently rushed to the hospital.
The soldier, who sustained light injuries to the stomach, was treated at the scene.
Head of the Samaria Council, Yossi Dagan, said, “The attempts to break the residents of Samaria will not succeed. This time, as well, soldiers showed exceptional resourcefulness at the scene. We thank the soldiers and commanders for their resourcefulness and expect a forceful response to attackers and those who send them.”
The last stabbing attack to have taken place in Israel was on May 23, during which a Border Police officer was stabbed in Netanya by a 45-year-old Muslim Arab terrorist who was shot and neutralized by his victim.
